One significant example is Crypto.com's acquisition of the naming rights to the Los Angeles Lakers' home arena for a rumored US$700 million over a 20-year period.
The Miami Heat and FTX inked new arena naming rights agreements, as did the Phoenix Suns and Footprint, and the Indiana Pacers and Gainbridge.

The technology industry spent the most on sponsorship, followed by bitcoin, banks, telecoms, and sports clothing, all of which spent more than $100 million every year.
